Forestry TA Application Portal

Welcome to Forestry TA Application Portal

To facilitate the hiring process of the Teaching Assistant (TA), the Faculty of Forestry Teaching and Learning Support team developed an application portal which allows for:

Instructors to review their applicants

Students to apply to multiple courses for TA positions using a single account

Department admins to view student information needed for the hiring process

Important Information for TA Application

The Teaching Assistant application portal for the 2022/23 Winter Term 1 and 2 will open on March 31, 2022. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2022. The portal will remain open for applications in the event that an adequate candidate is not found for a specific course, and those particular postings will be updated after this deadline. To apply for a TA position, complete and submit an online application. The maximum hours given to TAs per term is: 192 hours (12 hours a week). If you accept more than one offer in any department, you must notify the office immediately. Please note that positions posted are available subject to course enrollments, and provision of funds.

Once you have submitted your application, do NOT send an application twice or any updated resumes. You will only be contacted if you have been selected to be a TA. If you are selected as a successful candidate, you will receive an email with the details of your TA position. The University of British Columbia and the Faculty of Forestry hire on merit and dedication. We encourage qualified students applicants to apply.

Note: To apply to be a TA for the Faculty of Forestry, you must be a registered student at UBC Vancouver for the term(s) you are TAing (this applies to both Winter Terms and Summer Terms). The Teaching Assistant application portal is open to both graduate and undergraduate students.
